YEKATERINBURG, December 2. /TASS/. Deer, goats and a yak have given shelter to a female ostrich rejected by her fellow birds at the Tyumen zoo in western Siberia, the chief zookeeper told TASS on Wednesday.
"We have an ostrich couple and hoped they would have offspring. But they turned out to be brother and sister and we decided to buy another female ostrich," Tatiana Antropova said. "But the original birds began ignoring her and later even attacked the newcomer. We had no choice but to relocate her."
The ostrich was moved to the enclosure of goats, deer and a yak. "She was in stress for three days and the goats were also shocked. But they got used to each other later," she said. "We have such an extravagant company. They walk and eat together and don’t offend the ostrich," Antropova said.
A zoo in Russia's Far East recently made headlines for the unusual friendship between a three-year-old Siberian tiger and a goat meant to be his lunch.
